    I am having a similar problem. My Dyson DC14 seems to be working fine in the vaccum mode, but when i put the vacuum upright to take out the wand it makes this loud noise "air noise", if that makes sense, and there is little to no suction coming from the wand. Is this kindof what is happening to you? Do you hear a different sound when you go from vacuuming to upright to use the wand?

    Air escaping out of top vent just above where filter goes. Can't get it to work. Aren't these supposed to be good vaccuums?.

Try taking off the U bend and see if there is suction coming out from where the right end of the U bend connects. If there is suction then the problem lies after the u bend in the hose or wand.

    Also take a battery or a weighted object and drop it down the wand to see if there is any blockage Clog is most likely cause. dead motor can cause bad suction but will make a funny noise and smell.

AFTER NOT USING THE HOSE ATTACHMENT FOREVER, I FINALLY BROUGHT IT IN. (NEAREST SERVICE CENTER IS 55 MILES AWAY FROM MY HOUSE). ON THE VERY TOP, WHERE THE FLEXIBLE, RETRACTABLE PART OF THE WAND ENTERS THE PLASTIC MOUNTED PIECE ON THE BODY, WAS A WATER BOTTLE CAP. IT HAD LOOKED LIKE IT WAS PART OF THE VACCUUM, LOOKED LIKE THE SAME COLOR AND ALL. HE DROPPED A SCREWDRIVER THRU THE TUBE TO PUSH IT OUT. FELT LIKE A TOTAL IDIOT. THE REPAIRMAN SAID IT HAPPENS ALL THE TIME.
I REPLACED MY CLUTCH WHILE I WAS THERE TOO. MY VACCUUM IS 5 YEARS OLD, AND HE TOLD ME I WAS LUCKY IT WAS STILL AROUND. HE SAID THE NEW ONES WERE BETTER, BUT DIDNT SEEM TO IMPRESSED. I DO LOVE THE DYSON, BUT $120 FOR A CLUTCH WAS PAINFUL. BUT, ON THE OTHER HAND, I WOULD PURCHASE ANOTHER DYSON IN A HEARTBEAT
I HOPE IT'S MERELY AN INVISIBLE CAP FOR ALL OF YOU!

My Shark Navigator works very well, great suction. However, it is very hard to push on carpet. Can this be adjusted?


Two things make carpet vacing easier. First is the floor piece. It should be a smooth slight rounded shaped piece with just a small line of bristles or none at all. Second is mostly for area rugs is to open the suction vent usually located near the handle. That allows some air in which takes suction away from the floor piece allowing it to slide on the rug rather than drag it around.

Dyson DC14 hose won't extend and floor unit lost suction


Sounds like the exhaust side is clogged. Remember a vacuum pulls air into the cavity, but for it to work properly it also has to be able to exhaust the same amount of air it takes in. If the exhaust is blocked it will continue to suck air inside and collapse on itself, which is why your hoses are getting shorter and harder to move. Check the exhaust system for any blockages, perhaps the hole you taped was the exhaust.

I have a dc19. It has lost suction and air is coming out of the vent by the cord release button. What can i do to repair it


John, as you know air flow and CFM of the air is what makes the vacuum work. There is rubber seals or gaskets all along the air way to keep the air moving from the floor through the vacuum motor. You need to be sure a gasket has not wore out and allowing the vacuum air to escape. The vacuum motor must have a place exhaust the used vacuum and that pathway also has seals to insure it leaves the machine at the place the engineer who designed the machine wanted to go. Check for worn seals/gaskets in both incoming and outgoing airways. D&R Services, Inc.

No vacumm pressure. the passages are clear and the motor runs but there is very little suction.


if you are certain no blockages ? and the dust collector is clear/clean ? have you checked that the outlet filter which is located inside dust compartment is clean/clear this is usually a gauze filter its purpose is - as vac works and draws dust into collector the air that is sucked up thro vac builds up in collector chamber or bag on most vacs? and so for vac to maintain suction the air has to be able to escape to atmosphere/room without dust which is left insude chamber/bag if fitted and so air escapes via the gauze vent as prev mentioned ? however if gauze filter is not clear to vent then vacuuum is restricted due to air drawn being unable to expel sometimes on vacs they will eventually cut off due to o/heat but will operate when cooled so may i suggest checking the above possibility ?

Suction problem


first thing you need to do is replace the disc filter benieth the conical shaped shroud. also there is batting in the upper part of the vacuum tat should be replaced once every 4 years as well as it gets clogged with carbonfrom the motor. this increases the air flow through the vacuum keeping the motor cool and increasing your suction as well. the disc filter benieth the conical shroud should be replaced every 6 months under normal use and every 3 months under really dusty situations, and if vacuuming up fine talk powder every month. also check for a clog in the hose by hooking the hose up to the blower port on the top of the vacuum.

Dyson blowing top of cyclone air release valve.


It sounds like the same problem I was having. I had loss of suction through he hose then all of the air was coming out through the vent/valve on top of canister. If you are looking at your dyson from the back, look at the bottom. You will see a purple plastic tab on the bottom left. That allows you to remove the plastic u-shaped hose that goes from the hose to the bottom of the dyson. I just removed that and found it was completley blocked. I removed it and the dyson has no loss of suction orair through top valve/vent. I hope this helps. I never post but i'm just excited that I got my dyson working perfectly again.

Sudden loss of suction.


Check the inlet down by the brush roll to see if it is clogged. Also check the belt to be sure it is ok. Is there suction at the hose? If not then it is still clogged.
